Roma close to Haidara - report

Nancy left-back Massadio Haidara is on the verge of a move to Roma, according to reports.

French football journalist Johann Crochet has told that the 20-year-old has entered talks with the capital club, and could move over the winter transfer window.

“Haidara has been offered to Roma, that's for sure,” he told the website. “The guy is a powerful left-back, very fast and very good in attack.

“Nancy are in need of a financial injection and so could leave for a fee of around €4-5m.”

The young defender has played 16 times for the Ligue 1 club this season and last year made two appearances for the France Under-21 national team.
